Death has jury duty, so he’s left me in charge of his pets.
My name is Cal Thorpe, and after running to Life in some desperate attempt to prevent my becoming a Reaper, things have only gotten worse. While I’m trying to figure out how to come to terms with my abilities, Death has me petsitting his fur babies: two half-Fae dogs named Mischief and Mayhem, and a grimalkin Faerie cat named Shakespeare.
When the dogs accidentally get out, I have to venture to Faerie with Shakespeare at my side to retrieve them. Only, the Fae are tricky and now I’m on a quest for the Winter Queen to steal from her rival. Now I have to traverse Faerie kingdoms to save Death’s dogs. With an angry human servant to the Fae at my side, and Shakespeare to provide snarky comments, I can already tell this is going to be a problem.
As per usual, things go downhill from there.
